Under the Loctite brand from Henkel, maintenance experts can find all they need to keep their plant running smoothly for longer. Loctite has proven products for effective thread locking and sealing, gasketing, retaining, bonding, cleaning, pre-treatment, filling, protecting and lubricating. Indeed its one of the most comprehensive maintenance product ranges available. And never before has it been easier to select the right product for the job.
To support this increasingly growing market sector for Loctite products, Henkel has introduced a dedicated website for maintenance professionals, www.loctite-maintenance.co.uk. From here, the visitor can order the Loctite maintenance expert selector chart and guide, see products in action and get quick access to technical data and health and safety sheets. The site has also been optimised for use on mobile devices so can access expert advice wherever they are.
This new domain provides a shop window for the huge variety of products that are available for maintenance tasks, but special focus is given to a range that Henkel has dubbed its Loctite Maintenance Heroes. These are described as industry-proven products that are best suited to the lion’s share of applications.
Representing the Loctite thread lockers is Loctite 2400. As with all choices in this range, Loctite 2400 is designed to prevent movement, loosening, leaks and corrosion and secure any threaded fastener against vibration and shock loads. To seal threads this core group includes Loctite 55, a single component product that is easy to apply and does not creep, shrink or block systems.
Henkel supplies a comprehensive series of Health and Safety products that include anaerobic products, instant adhesives, gasketing products and heavy-duty maintenance cleaners. A new addition to this growing Health and Safety range is the Loctite SI 5980 oil-resistant silicone, the chosen Maintenance Heroes’ flange sealant. It comes in a ready-to-use, pressurised can with integrated rigid nozzle that gives pinpoint control.
No maintenance essentials kit would be complete without Loctite bonding products, the application for which the company is perhaps best known. Two proven formulations are highlighted, Loctite 401, a general purpose instant adhesive that provides excellent adhesion on multiple substrates. The second is Loctite 3090, a really useful product that gap fills as well as instantly bonds.
Next in line is the Loctite 3463, the Metal Magic Stick. This is suitable for the emergency sealing of tanks and pipes. It is steel-filled, kneadable and even adheres to damp surfaces and cures under water.
Completing the Loctite Maintenance Heroes set are the Loctite 7063 cleaner and degreaser, Loctite 8201 moisture dispersing multi-purpose oil and Loctite 8150, Henkel’s aluminium anti-seize.
This cross-section of products has been chosen to emphasise the scope of what is available within the Loctite range. Many variants are available for every maintenance, repair and overhaul application and all are supported by Henkel’s technical consultancy that is freely available.
